Fantastic moving company! They were incredibly helpful and communicative from the moment I booked until the move. They were aggressively priced, prompt, professional, fast, careful with everything and even took initiative to take the fire escape with larger items without hesitation. I can't say enough positive things about Robert, Johnny and Zachary at Rogers Moving! Top movers in Chicagoland!

I cannot say enough positive things about SafeHands Movers! I have used multiple cross country, and I believe most of the local movers in my area; absolutely NONE of them compare to the level of expertise, professionalism, superior customer service, extreme care w/all of my items, and "can do attitude" that Melvin and the entire team at SafeHands Movers provides. In addition to being very reasonably priced, efficient, offering multiple days/times to accommodate a move, etc., when I was told by Melvin (and the team the day of my move) that I was "not to worry at all or lift a finger to help", THEY MEAN IT!! I was used to jumping in to keep "professional movers" moving in every move I've ever had so that items weren't ruined and I could ensure I didn't have to pay more. SafeHands Movers stuck to the flat rate quote I was given, never even took 5 minutes for a break, were SO pleasant and trustworthy, that I haven't stopped telling everyone I know to utilize this company, and tell everyone they know about the unbelievable quality service I enjoyed. Let's face it - moving is not pleasant in the best of circumstances. SafeHands Movers IS A PLEASURE to have been fortunate enough to find and hire! You will not be disappointed in any way with this company! Absolutely the best - 10 stars for sure!!

Excellent work! The movers were efficient & very helpful! They handled my items with care and made sure to get my things unloaded within the 2 hour time frame that my complex allowed me to borrow the elevator! Very professional. Would definitely hire them again

King David Movers' customer service is unparalleled. My family has moved six times in the last eight years with job transfers, so we have worked with some of the best cross-country movers. We haven't had such great luck with local movers until we worked with King David Movers. The crew were fast, professional, and very CAREFUL. We had a great experience with King David Moving and would certainly use them again. We had two stops for pick-ups which King David easily accommodated; the crew did a great job at both locations, packing up every small to large items and efficiently loading up the truck. We packed up our personals and clothes, I was lucky that they had moving boxes and wardrobe boxes in their truck (They are generous!) Our move involved a Piano to be moved as well, the crew worked very hard and finished faster than the time we were quoted. All four men crew were conscientious with our belongings and clothes, they really did more than a terrific job! Not only that but also the crew disassembled and reassembled several beds, removed and replaced the feet on our sofa, and carefully used furniture pads and plastic wrap for all of our furniture. The conservative quote was appreciated as it allowed us to estimate well for our move. What separates a good move from a great move is the customer service; and King David Movers win! Thank you King David Movers!

I had some challenges with this company before during and after. I told myself I wouldnt write a review because they sent someone out and tried to resolve the issues but I found the screws to my six month old's crib laying in the bed with the baby and I'm pissed. Some of my other issues: 1. Movers left packing materials all over my old place. 2. They changed my moving time the day before. I'm schedule for 1pm, I get s call the pay before saying my move is at 9. We comprise and settle for 12. Movers show up at 11. 3. Despite getting an estimate and hiring 3 movers.. only 2 show up and I'm way over the estimate. 4. My daughters crib was installed backwards. They dissembled it so you'd figure they put it back properly. I recently found a screw from the crib in my daughters bed!! Oh and the side panels are so loose. My guess is they were broken during the move because the crib was new. My bed was also dissembled by them and not put back together property. -guy comes out to fit it leaves out a screw. Overall I wouldn't hired them for anything.

Moving is so difficult, but everyone with Chicagoland Movers did their best to make it a good experience. Everyone including the owners, scheduler and movers were polite, knowledgeable, punctual, and trustworthy. They swiftly moved awkward furniture and were careful with fragile items. They made an extra trip the day after my move to bring my plants to my new house. They even picked up my boxes a few days after the move. I compared value and customer care promises carefully before choosing them and I made the right choice. I HIGHLY recommend them.

The responsiveness from Liberty from the quoting to the scheduling was very good. We specifically waited for the weekend until they could make us the first move of the day. Unfortunately, the day before, I received a call asking if we could push the time to noon instead of 8am. I agreed; but never again. The house before ours gave a 2 hour estimate that actually resulted in 6 hours; not Liberty's fault. I received a call from one of the movers at 2pm stating they were just starting to unload the previous house. By 5:30, I called him back asking when they would be there only to be told that another crew had been called in to help and was assigned to our move; they showed up at 5:40. So our day was wasted waiting for the movers to come with almost no communication on the status. But the crew that did show up more than made up for the late arrival/communication issues. They were nothing short of amazing. Because of them, we would use Liberty again. They were 3 of the hardest working guys I've met. We had an over-sized couch that was too big to fit through the door; they brainstormed, tried different ideas, communicated well with each other to figure out how to get this done without ruining our door or couch. They should have been cursing by this point, but they remained so pleasant and determined. They wrapped all our furniture even though we hadn't requested it. And they didn't waste time; they powered through quickly and got us done in 2 hours. We will be calling them again when we move into a new house, but I will insist on being the first move of the day this time. To Liberty's defense, they are at the mercy of homeowners being honest about the scope of the move, so I understand how things run long; I just wish there had been better communication about it on that day so that we were able to get things done rather than waiting all day not knowing. Despite that, excellent customer service and excellent quality of work.

I am very satisfied with athletic movers. I had movers cancel on me via email at midnight the morning before they were to help with a move. I found athletic movers on thumbtack the morning of my move and they responded in a timely fashion and were able to come out that afternoon and quickly finish what we needed done! They were very careful and offered advice on placement of our furniture. Travis and his associate are professionals and I would use them again without hesitation.

Moving is never pleasant, but H2H seriously made our lives SO much easier. We got all of our items without a single scratch on the items, or either of the homes. We also underestimated the amount of stuff we had and therefore the size truck we would need, and when they found out a slightly larger truck was not immediately available, they went all tetris in the truck and made everything fit. I genuinely don't know how they did it. The men who moved us were very nice and so incredibly fast, and they are the only cross-country movers that didn't have a huge "window" of time in which they would deliver our stuff. We have several friends that ended up needing to wait weeks to get their items, while we arrived mere hours before they did. I would go out of my way to recommend these movers any chance I get. Good employees, good customer service, and good work. Thank you!

Nice movers, on time, efficient, worked there butts off on one of the hottest days of the summer, up and down multiple flights of stairs for 2.5 hours and never once complained and or asked for a break. I had to remind them to take a break. Highly recommend their services if you have to move fast one a budget. The only thing they didn't offer were moving supplies and a truck.

Fabian and Moses were wonderful. They arrived right on time, worked super hard and efficiently, and were just generally kind and lovely people. I needed my stuff moved from a shipping pod in Des Plaines to a storage unit in Avondale. The movers who had loaded my stuff in Philadelphia hadn't done a great job and some of the furniture was scratched upon arrival. Fabian and Moses rewrapped my furniture so it wouldn't get damaged any further. They also asked me what my plans were and then arranged everything in my storage unit so it would be easily accessible. All of this was completed in a little over two hours, which was just a hair over the original estimate. I highly recommend these folks!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do moving companies do?

Moving companies provide a range of services to help you physically move out of one residence and move into a new place. But moving companies can do so much more than just haul your belongings across town in a truck. The national average for moving company prices ($250-$350 per hour) reflects the range of services provided. Here are examples of all the ways moving companies can help:

  • Packing: Moving companies can pack your belongings for you. They typically charge a flat rate for both the box and the labor to pack the box. The more time-consuming the belongings are to pack, the higher the cost per box. For example, books could be $5 per box, linens $10 per box, and fine china and glassware $18 per box.
  • Specialty moving: Safely move a baby grand piano, a oversize aquarium, or other specialty items with the help of pro movers.
  • Storage: Many moving companies can store your belongings while you wait for a new home to be remodeled or closing of your new home to be finalized. If you’re moving long-distance, they often provide short-term storage free for a specific length of time, and a set rate after that (such as $60 per square cubic foot of storage space used).
  • Long-distance moves: No need to rent a trailer and move your things; a long-distance moving company can haul your belongings across the country for you. Typically they charge by the cubic foot for moves, with prices based on your destination.
  • Unpacking: Moving companies can even unpack your belongings for you after they have moved them. This is not as common, and will definitely increase the price, but can be helpful if you’re not able to tackle this task yourself.

How much does a moving company charge per hour?

When you’re ready to make a major move, it’s time to research moving companies’ prices. A moving company may charge on average anywhere between $25 and $100 per hour, per worker, for moving services. The price will vary with regional labor rates, local cost to do business, and the level of service the movers are providing. Nationally, the average hourly rate for a moving company is $250-$350 per hour. This price includes a range of pricing, from all-in service with four or more movers on site to standard hourly rates for one or two movers. Other factors that affect moving companies’ prices are packing, stairs (or elevators), and distance. For a full-service move, you pay movers to pack your belongings for you. You may pay for the cost of the moving boxes and an hourly rate per worker, and there may be additional charges for packing fragile items. Stairs will also add to your moving prices. Lifting and carrying boxes and furniture up and down stairs takes more time and creates more physical labor for the workers. Moving companies may charge flat rates for flights of stairs, such as $50-$70 per flight. A moving company may also charge a one-time fee for moving things via elevator, such as $75-$100. If parking is not accessible in front of your home or apartment building, there may also be an additional fee for the added distance to carry your belongings to the truck.
